    He's very raw, but he does have potential. He was getting top four, sometimes even top two minutes, and there must have been some reason he was given all those minutes. San Jose has done a good job developing defenseman, however, I being in a Sharks uniform anytime soon. Without any teal-colored shades, the Sharks have one of, if not the best prospect defensive depth in the NHL. Stuart, Mclaren, and Hannan, aren't going anywhere, and Joslin still has to pass Fahey, Preissing, Davison, Ehrhoff, Murray Gorges, Carle, Spang, Conboy Vernace, Vlasic, and Stafford, all who are probably higher on the depth chart than he is. It might be 4-6 years before he dons a Shark uniform, and even that is highly doubtful. While he may make it, Joslin will probably be traded down the road or will leave as an unqualified free agent (like Jessie Fibiger).

    Then again, if the Sharks were so deep on D prospects, why did they draft him? They migh have seen something special in him, and he could be the next late-round steal for San Jose.

    He is a steady OHL defenceman, but I don't see him being an NHL regular in his career. He lacks the footspeed to play in the NHL effectively, and is not big, physical or skilled enough to overcome it.
